The Wildest Cowboy
Illustrated by Sara OgilvieAges 3-5
Way out in the West there's a town they call Fear
And only the roughest and toughest live here . . .
When cheerful salesman, Bingo B Brown, rolls his wagon full of Wild West goodies into town, he's met with a stony silence. This is clearly no place for novelty bow ties and elastic lassos. Not even Bingo's dancing dog can raise a smile! But this town is not just joyless, it's dangerous. And as Bingo soon discovers, the people of the town are not just scary, they're also scared.
It isn't long before Bingo and his dog discover why, as they come face to face with the Wildest Cowboy in the West!
Saddle up for a spectacular ride with a wildly talented pairing: film director and author, Garth Jennings and star illustrator, Sara Ogilvie. The Wildest Cowboy is a funny and uplifting adventure story in which fun wins out over fear. Featuring a dramatic train chase, rattlesnake socks and a dancing dog!
The Wild West isn’t usually a setting for many picture books (at least in the UK), which seems a shame based on this riotous, colourful adventure, which fuses the joy of fancy dress with the dusty remoteness of a pioneer town. This is film director and writer Garth Jennings’ debut picture book, and his Seuss-like rhyming text powers the story along with the bouncy rhythm of Bingo B Brown’s train. Sara Ogilvie’s vibrant, animated and detailed illustration is a perfect partner, giving a fearless sense of fun triumphing over fear.
This is an absolute joy to read and is packed full of fun and colourful illustrations that complement the story perfectly.
Eye-catching right from first glance, this wonderful story with its catchy rhyming text is a perfect read-aloud... superbly illustrated by Sara Ogilvie, this is a Wild West tale with a difference.
